Plumber? Builder? Plasterer? Multi-trader? Want to add tiling or decorating to your skillset? Dunlop – specialist manufacturer of tiling, flooring and decorating products for the trade – is calling on tradespeople to sign up to its new training courses.
Held at the company’s state-of-the-art Innovation and Technology Centre in Stoke-on-Trent, the training courses provide tradespeople with up-to-date knowledge on the latest products and installation techniques.
Led by Dave Rowley, Dunlop Training Manager, and members of the company’s technical team, one to five-day practical courses are available to tradesmen and women this March and June.
Training techniques include presentations, workshops, demonstrations and hands-on practical training within individual working bays with mock-up windows, pipework and toilets for example, designed to reflect real life installations.
Throughout the course, delegates will mix and use professional adhesives, grouts, fillers and smoothers onto realistic backgrounds.
Dave commented: “Training is a key priority at Dunlop, and we believe it is important to give tradespeople – whether they are new to the trade, at college, or have many years’ experience – the opportunity to learn about the latest technologies and installation practices to enhance their skills.
“All training takes place at our state-of-the-art Innovation and Technology Centre with its practical training bays, demonstration auditorium and conference rooms providing the perfect training facility for all of our courses.”
